The Long Walk to Humanics: There can never be an app that will replace a surgeon doing the surgery nor there can ever be a bridge built, symphony composed, epic written, painting painted by a machine. Reading is such a vital thing in pursuit of knowledge for without reading knowledge is rudimentary. The Humanion is for Readers to Read. The Humanion is not for anything else but for Readers to read so to be encouraged to think and ponder about things. The Humanion is a Human Enterprise which is an idea in which no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for others as others create and work for them, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty  that establish a true civilisation. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society.......But in the meanwhile...And thus, The Humanion believes we should seek to ensure that all citizens of a nation have: a: Guaranteed Universal Income; b: A Guaranteed Home; c: A Guaranteed Education Up to College and Guaranteed Subsidised Route to Degree-Level Education; d: A Guaranteed Job; e: Guaranteed Access to Free for All Healthcare at the Point of Need and f: A Guaranteed Universal-Child-Income-Protection Where Every Child is Guaranteed Equal Financial Support from 0-16; g: Guaranteed Social Care and h: Guaranteed Access to Equitable Pension:Provides a living income. So, join us: Join The Humanion Team

The Humanion MSF: Syria: Starvation Continues in Madaya - MSF Denounces Continued Blockage of Essential Aid and Medical Evacuations

29 January 2016: Brussels - Residents of the besieged Syrian town of Madaya continue to die of starvation, despite the provision of aid in convoys, as the Syrian government-led coalition blocks life-saving medical supplies from the town, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said Friday. It is totally unacceptable that people continue to die from starvation, and that critical medical cases remain in the town when they should have been evacuated weeks ago. Brice de le Vingne, MSF’s Director of Operations. Readmore

The World MSF Alert: Five Epidemics to Watch We know that thousands of lives will be at risk in the year to come, although the means exist to prevent these deaths. Epidemics of cholera, malaria, measles and meningitis take place every year, incapacitating and killing many – and this needs to stop. At the same time, the threat posed by emerging and re-emerging virus and parasite-spread diseases – such as dengue fever, Zika, Ebola and Kala Azar – needs to be faced. Dr Monica Rull, Operational Health Advisor for MSF. Readmore

It is so fitting that today ESA has released this image of the Martian Noctis Labyrinthus where soon the humans to set foot.

The World Dr Margaret Chan, Director- General of WHO On Zika Virus



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The situation today is dramatically different. Last year, the virus was detected in the Americas, where it is now spreading explosively. As of today, cases have been reported in 23 countries and territories in the region. The level of alarm is extremely high. Arrival of the virus in some places has been associated with a steep increase in the birth of babies with abnormally small heads and in cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome. A causal relationship between Zika virus infection and birth malformations and neurological syndromes has not yet been established, but is strongly suspected. The possible links, only recently suspected, have rapidly changed the risk profile of Zika, from a mild threat to one of alarming proportions. The increased incidence of microcephaly is particularly alarming, as it places a heart-breaking burden on families and communities........For all these reasons, I have decided to convene an Emergency Committee under the International Health Regulations. The Committee will meet in Geneva on Monday, 1 February. Readmore

Poetry

I come from haunts of coot and hern,
I make a sudden sally
And sparkle out among the fern,
To bicker down a valley.

By thirty hills I hurry down,
Or slip between the ridges,
By twenty thorpes, a little town,
And half a hundred bridges.

Till last by Philip's farm I flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on for ever.

I chatter over stony ways,
In little sharps and trebles,
I bubble into eddying bays,
I babble on the pebbles.

With many a curve my banks I fret
By many a field and fallow,
And many a fairy foreland set
With willow-weed and mallow.

The World Besieged Syrians ‘Believe the World Has Forgotten Them,’ UN Relief Chief Tells Security Council

The World Stephen O'Brien, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator

Mr. O’Brien, who briefed the Council alongside World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director Ertharin Cousin, said that after five long years of conflict, the facts speak for themselves: over 250,000 people killed, well over a million injured, 6.5 million displaced within Syria, almost 4.6 million refugees, and much of the remaining population – some 13.5 million people – are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.

The World Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director of the UN World Food Programme

The only solution is through political dialogue that reduces and ultimately ends the violence. The key stakeholders in the Syria crisis must do what has never been done up to this point and put people before politics,” he said, underscoring that on the eve of further political talks, “it is my hope, and the hope of all humanitarians, that the key stakeholders finally take the bold, unselfish and courageous decisions necessary to bring an end to this ruinous war and the unimaginable suffering of the Syrian people.

A Letter to Myself

 

Do you now understand dear self why and how he
Friedrich Nietzsche died do you now understand
How madness drives the most sane to death for it
Could not be bourn it could not be bourn it could



NOT be bourn this lunacy this cruelty selfishness
Do you understand my self dear self not that I am
Bothered about what or who I am for in this infinity
Of creation filled with infinity of darkness in infinity



Of spectacles of luminous lights joyous and beautiful
I am just an insignificant absolutely tiny trifling thing
Much do I have not yet much do I take for this imbecile



Soul is spread across the Universe so it feels all the culls
All the culls of lights but I am no Nietzsche and shall not
Ever give up my vigil of screaming out the names of lights

She shuttles between the camp and the petrol station where the owners have allowed the medical charity to set up six tents.

Neurology Genetics Genetic Mechanisms Control the Linear Scaling Between Related Cortical Primary and Higher Order Sensory Areas  

In a recently published research in eLife Andreas Zembrzycki, Adam M Stocker, Axel Leingärtner, Setsuko Sahara, Shen-Ju Chou, Valery Kalatsky, Scott R May, Michael P Stryker, Dennis DM O'Leary writes that in mammals, the neocortical layout consists of few modality-specific primary sensory areas and a multitude of higher order ones. Abnormal layout of cortical areas may disrupt sensory function and behavior. Developmental genetic mechanisms specify primary areas, but mechanisms influencing higher order area properties are unknown. By exploiting gain-of and loss-of function mouse models of the transcription factor Emx2, we have generated bi-directional changes in primary visual cortex size in vivo and have used it as a model to show a novel and prominent function for genetic mechanisms regulating primary visual area size and also proportionally dictating the sizes of surrounding higher order visual areas. This finding redefines the role for intrinsic genetic mechanisms to concomitantly specify and scale primary and related higher order sensory areas in a linear fashion. Readmore

Poetry

She dwelt among the untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove,
Maid whom there were none to praise
And very few to love:

A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye!
---Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.

She lived unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
The difference to me!
 

William Wordsworth

Diversity

Our Unity is the ultimate expression of oneness that is determined to make itself as diverse as possible so to be able to achieve that what we have chosen: to continue to go on maintaining, achieving, fostering, regulating, nurturing, enhancing, advancing, empowering and adapting homeostasis which allows us to become the best of that what we seek and strive to become: in harmony with ourselves as well as in communion and equilibrium with the outer, wider, deeper, greater and complex Universe in which we must live and be.

Oneness ''In expressing a truth a human would  find means as Einstein did and expressed it  As E = mc2. Or would find a way to express one's inner truth as one finds them like René Descartes and express it as Cogito ergo sum.  In joy, in harmony, in happiness, in love, in care, in compassion, in being graceful, in being kind, in being thoughtful, in being considerate, in thankfulness, in being in and among family, friends, community and society, in achieving and creating, in singing and in celebration, in pain, in agony, in suffering, in despair, in longing, in facing challenges, in drawing out strength and steel as required, in feeding hope, in keeping faith, in short, in being human, there is no difference between two humans regardless of their form, shape, colour, stature, physique, nationality, religion, language, gender, class, status etc.  We all have the common language of our humanity which is our humanity itself. That is the ultimate human language in which we can and do connect and communicate without the need of any other human tongue as and when we must when mere humanity connects us together. Readmore

Poetry

I've sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I've seen the wonders of the world
not yet one common man.

I know ten thousand women
called Jane and Mary Jane,
but I've not seen any two
who really were the same.

-------------------------------

I note the obvious differences
between each sort and type,
but we are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

Charity of The Day Save the Children Child Refugee Crisis Appeal Donate Now

Europe is facing its worst refugee crisis since the Second World War: Child refugees are frightened and homeless. Some are alone and in desperate need of protection. Many have witnessed unspeakable horrors. Our teams are working across Europe and in the countries they are fleeing to provide vital aid and support. Help us reach more children.  Thousands of children and families fleeing bombs, bullets and torture in warzones like Syria are in desperate need of care and protection. This year, more than 820,000 people have made the perilous trip across the Mediterranean to Europe. For those who do survive the journey, the terrifying ordeal is not over. Bundled into trucks or walking many miles, children are afraid and exhausted, and the physical impact of travelling is clear. Waits for registration can take days. Toilets are scarce, and food and water are often in shortly supply. With winter setting in, many children are sleeping in freezing tents or out in the open. You’ve already given so much to our child refugee crisis appeal – thank you. But the number of child refugees is growing. Please help

verlorne Geliebte, Nimmergekommene,
nicht weiß ich, welche Töne dir lieb sind.
Nicht mehr versuch ich, dich, wenn das Kommende wogt,
zu erkennen.

Ach, die Gärten bist du,
ach, ich sah sie mit solcher
Hoffnung. Ein offenes Fenster
im Landhaus—, und du tratest beinahe
mir nachdenklich heran. Gassen fand ich,—
du warst sie gerade gegangen,
und die spiegel manchmal der Läden der Händler
waren noch schwindlich von dir und gaben erschrocken
mein zu plötzliches Bild.—Wer weiß, ob derselbe
Vogel nicht hinklang durch uns

Thought of the Day: United Kingdom in the European Union: The plurality of the United Kingdom is expressed in the fact that here live four nations on the British Isles. Thus, those, who would think United Kingdom is and can be expressed only in English would be terribly wrong for here we have the English, we have the Scots, we have the Welsh and we have the Irish (well, the northern ones!) and all have their own language. English is the common tongue but the same thought, same idea can be expressed in many ways in the United Kingdom: in English, in Scottish Gaelic, in Irish or Welsh or Cornish. Thus, despite the fact that in the United Kingdom we may find the entire world languages being in use, the United Kingdom is not a mono lingual country, particularly, after the considerable devolution the UK has gone through for which all the other devolved governments are focusing on initiatives to encourage development of their national tongues. Being part of Europe, the first and foremost thing a person finds is the welcome celebration of this plurality. On the left, we have placed  the first screen that a visitor is greeted with when one visits the European Union website europa.eu. It offers the visitor a choice of 24 European Languages to choose from, making the instant statement that the same institution of the European Union can and does function in unison that can be expressed in 24 different ways, in 24 different languages. Lucky for English, for alphabetically, it is listed in no 7! This, must we never forget, in our everyday living that we ought to remain vigilant of our becoming stuck in one way of looking at things for there are many a way of not only looking at things but also of thinking of things, questioning, expressing, imagining and creating things. And the more we celebrate this fact the better we are as humans for it makes us appreciative of the equal joy and beauty of our human plurality. Readmore

Whether you knew what joy you are
In the deep depth of the Milky Way

Twinkle twinkle Diamond stars
Deep and distant lone you shine
In my eyes sing sleepless dreams
All your joys and shines and calls

There you stay here I am light you do
Lit I am and lit you are light I am o
Twinkle twinkle Diamond Stars

In my soul you swim in joys and
In my dreams you sing all dreams
Twinkle you go twinkle you speak

The World End This Slaughter in Syria, Now! UN and 120 Humanitarian Agencies Unite
More than 120 humanitarian organisations and United Nations agencies issued a joint appeal today urging the world to raise their voices and call for an end to the Syria crisis. “It touches those in Syria who have lost loved ones and livelihoods, who have been uprooted from their homes, or who live in desperation under siege. Today, some 13.5 million people inside Syria need humanitarian assistance. That is not simply a statistic. These are 13.5 million individual human beings, like these two instances of a CHILD in this photograph, whose lives and futures are in jeopardy,” This war has seen 4.6 million people flee to neighbouring countries and beyond. This slaughter, this carnage against humanity must be brought to an end! This slaughter in Syria must be brought to en END!

So haggard and so woe-begone?

3. The EU is convinced that only the reestablishment of a political horizon and the resumption of dialogue can stop the violence. Security measures alone cannot stop the cycle of violence. The underlying causes of the conflict need to be addressed. The EU reaffirms its support to the Quartet calls for significant transformative steps to be taken, consistent with the transition envisaged by prior agreements, in order to restore confidence and rebuild trust. The EU urges both sides to implement these measures at the earliest juncture possible. A fundamental change of policy by Israel with regard to the occupied Palestinian territory, particularly in Area C, will significantly increase economic opportunities, empower Palestinian institutions and enhance stability and security for both Israelis and Palestinians.

Thought of the Day: If you stand beneath these skies with wonders in your eyes and love in your soul ( that hurts as it sings) you find there flows the river beneath whose bed is held the tectonic plates of mother earth in whose depth of heart is the nuclear core that heats up geological seismic meter upon whose spread is sprung something called life with the photosynthetic magic in which the magical power of the sun excites the the chlorophyll of the 'tiny greens' out of which happens the miracle of 'building blocks of life' being built out of which is built the architecture of life. In this there's poetry in this there's biochemistry, mechanics and mechanisms. In Neurology's reach or Genetics' seek or Cosmology's depth or celestial jubilations in the forms of spheres and  constellations and motion and seasons of light and the dark the the poet seeks the light the medic seeks the cure. Life is for living life is for loving. To live the art and to practise the science and in between the spread remains the magic spread between the stretched out wings of the seagull and the swims of the dolphin which is what The Humanion seeks to sing. So as you hold the pen or the surgeon's knife or the brush or the sickle or the plough do not ever let go of the fact as to why ATP it is that's the key. To make so to create, to break so to make so to shape so to make a shape of life. Remember to make the shape of the magnum of all magic of the human heart. Readmore

The Candle Won't Blow Out Celebration of William Shakespeare 2016: Join in the Celebration

Macbeth

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Measure for Measure

Could great men thunder
As Jove himself does? Jove would never be quiet,
For every pelting petty officer
Would use his heaven for thunder
Nothing but thunder. Merciful Heaven,
Thou rather, with thy sharp and sulphurous bolt,
Splits the unwedgeable and gnarled oak
Than the soft myrtle. But man, proud men,
Dress'd in little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he's most assur'd
His glassy essence. like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven
As makes the angels weep; who, with our spleens,
Would all themselves laugh mortal.

 

Lit and Light As Butterflies Do
 


As you like it but how yet much do you not make ado nor
Much do you speak for silence is emerald green as measure
Is for measure yet treasure do you not that what's only fools'
Gold as Othello speaks out Desdemona as Hamlet questions
 


Why seek not Richard the Third nor Lady Macbeth for Love's
Labours are never lost if you loved true if love splits your soul
As a lightning does the dark heavens in a stormy night and if
Ophelia-wonder you seek never keep a ledger but be love’s slate
 

Use not old coins or words but make your own to say or do
Walk not the travelled paths nor climb easy mountains-tops
What’s worth of twelfth night's dreams unless you’ve dreamt
 

What would Juliet say what would Romeo do for the lamp is lit
Of their soul that simply won't blow in the market you won't find
Love to buy but live it in your soul as butterflies do lit and light

Medicine Cardiff University Cancer Research Break Through: Scientists Re-engineer Body’s Immune System for Safer and More Effective Cancer Treatment


T-cell

Dr David Cole (L) Dr Pierre Rizkallah (R) Cardiff University Medical School

Scientists have demonstrated a new way of re-engineering the body’s immune system to target cancer, paving the way for a new generation of drugs, unprecedented in safety and effectiveness.

Researchers from Cardiff University used powerful X-ray technology to engineer an enhanced kind of white blood cell – known as a T-Cell– capable of targeting cancerous tissue while minimising contact with healthy tissue, which can be fatal to patients receiving this kind of experimental therapy.

The Junior Doctors (which is quite a misleading term, since these are qualified doctors, they may be young, who have done their post qualification training and worked quite many years in the profession) Contract Dispute has been going on for quite a long period which should not have been going on! The term dispute suggests there is a need to to negotiate as parties disagree. Readmore

Molecular Biology Attenuation of AMPK Signaling by ROQUIN Promotes T Follicular Helper Cell Formation

In a recent research published in eLife Roybel R Ramiscal, Ian A Parish, Robert S Lee-Young, Jeffrey J Babon, Julianna Blagih, Alvin Pratama, Jaime Martin, Naomi Hawley, Jean Y Cappello, Pablo F Nieto, Julia I Ellyard, Nadia J Kershaw, Rebecca A Sweet, Christopher C Goodnow, Russell G Jones, Mark A Febbraio, Carola G Vinuesa, Vicki Athanasopoulos writes that T follicular helper cells (Tfh) are critical for the longevity and quality of antibody-mediated protection against infection. Yet few signaling pathways have been identified to be unique solely to Tfh development. ROQUIN is a post-transcriptional repressor of T cells, acting through its ROQ domain to destabilize mRNA targets important for Th1, Th17, and Tfh biology. Here, we report that ROQUIN has a paradoxical function on Tfh differentiation mediated by its RING domain Readmore

Neurology Schematic Memory Components Converge Within Angular Gyrus During Retrieval

In a recent research published in eLife Isabella C Wagner, Mariët van Buuren, Marijn CW Kroes, Tjerk P Gutteling, Marieke van der Linden, Richard G Morris, Guillén Fernández writes that Mental schemas form associative knowledge structures that can promote the encoding and consolidation of new and related information. Schemas are facilitated by a distributed system that stores components separately, presumably in the form of inter-connected neocortical representations. During retrieval, these components need to be recombined into one representation, but where exactly such recombination takes place is unclear. Thus, we asked where different schema components are neuronally represented and converge during retrieval. Subjects acquired and retrieved two well-controlled, rule-based schema structures during fMRI on consecutive days. Readmore

Michelle Obama writes: On Tuesday, my husband will deliver his seventh and final State of the Union address.

He'll be talking about making things better for you and your family right now -- and he'll also be sharing his vision for how, together we can make this country a better place for the next generation, and generations to come.

That's been his mission since the day he took office, and he'll be doing everything he can with every minute he has left as President to deliver on behalf of the American people.

This speech is for you, and we want to know you'll be there, watching.

Say, you'll join me and millions of other Americans on Tuesday to watch the State of the Union.

Each year, I have the honor of attending this address with a few of the many Americans who have inspired Barack -- and this year is no exception.

Formerly homeless Navy veteran Cindy Dias works with Veterans Village, a non-profit that has answered our Joining Forces call to End Veterans' Homelessness in Las Vegas.

Neurology

Translational Control of Nociception via 4E-binding Protein 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a recent paper published in eLife Arkady Khoutorsky, Robert P Bonin, Robert E Sorge, Christos G Gkogkas, Sophie Anne Pawlowski, Seyed Mehdi Jafarnejad, Mark H Pitcher, Tommy Alain, Jimena Perez-Sanchez, Eric W Salter, Loren Martin, Alfredo Ribeiro-da-Silva, Yves De Koninck, Fernando Cervero, Jeffrey S Mogil, Nahum Sonenberg writes that Activation of the mechanistic/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) kinase in models of acute and chronic pain is strongly implicated in mediating enhanced translation and hyperalgesia. However, the molecular mechanisms by which mTOR regulates nociception remain unclear. Here we show that deletion of the eukaryotic initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1 (4E-BP1), a major mTOR downstream effector, which represses eIF4E activity and cap-dependent translation, leads to mechanical, but not thermal pain hypersensitivity. Mice lacking 4E-BP1 exhibit enhanced spinal cord expression of neuroligin 1, a cell-adhesion postsynaptic protein regulating excitatory synapse function, and show increased excitatory synaptic input into spinal neurons, and a lowered threshold for induction of synaptic potentiation. Pharmacological inhibition of eIF4E or genetic reduction of neuroligin 1 levels normalizes the increased excitatory synaptic activity and reverses mechanical hypersensitivity. Thus, translational control by 4E-BP1 downstream of mTOR effects the expression of neuroligin 1 and excitatory synaptic transmission in the spinal cord, and thereby contributes to enhanced mechanical nociception.

United Kingdom Homelessness: Number of Rough Sleepers Increasing

Rough sleeping is still increasing: Despite these considerable efforts, the official rough sleeper counts have risen in each year since new methodology was introduced in autumn 2010. Existing programmes have recorded successes in helping individuals to exit rough sleeping, but the flow on to the streets continues. The UK Statistics Authority declared DCLG’s Rough Sleeping statistics to not to meet the standard to be regarded as National Statistics in December 2015.
Rough sleeping is at its most severe in London. The latest financial year report from the Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN) database, CHAIN Street to Home Annual Report 2014-15, shows that a total of 7,581 rough sleepers were contacted by outreach workers or building-based teams in London during 2014/15 compared to 6,508 contacts in 2013/14; representing an increase of 16%.
Factors identified as contributing to the ongoing flow of new rough sleepers to the streets include: welfare reforms, particularly reductions in entitlement to Housing Benefit/Local Housing Allowance; reduced investment by local authorities in homeless services; and flows of non-UK nationals who are unable to access benefits.
Organisations working in the sector have called for a commitment to end rough sleeping; an effective safety net; and for a long-term homelessness strategy backed by investment to deliver it.  There is support for legislation to extend the priority need categories to cover all homeless people.

North America Listen America, Father of Daniel is Speaking

Daniel Barden, only 7, was one of 26 whose lives were taken on December 14, 2012 in the Mass Shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in America.  The White House has just issued the following on the Eve of President Barack Obama's much anticipated Executive Action on Gun Control to be Presented
We called him the custodian of all living things. If an ant had crawled its way into our kitchen, he'd gently pick it up and carry it out outside to rejoin its family. If he saw a classmate sitting alone, he'd be the first to provide company and comfort. At 7 years old, he cared, he listened, and he loved more deeply than many adults I know. Readmore

Dear Γαῖα,

In days 365.256 you have travelled many a mile if I write you
A letter you won’t be able to read for you do only live in my
Imagination yet I write you a letter to say that that’s just a year
In human terms and you’ve clocked silentine 584 million miles

With a speed of 29.78 km/s or 18.50 m/s or 107,200 km/h or
66,600 mph in short that’s a year gone and you begin again
The Sun stays far away at 92.957 million miles as you would
Go following laws unfailing turning and twirling a butterfly

In the magnum darkness a butterfly of light blue and white
I call you Dhoritthree Γαῖα Terra but you remain silent as
People speak in so many a tongue marking up countries

And nations so many jackets they find but I found you as
Mine yet you do not speak nor do many speak your tongue
Of silence in which you are my poetry-iris playing my soul

The Poet

Imagine a Rose-Boat

Imagine a rose floating like a tiny little boat on this ocean of infinity
And raise your soul-sail on this wee-little boat and go seeking out
All along feed on nothing but the light that you gather only light
Fear shall never fathom you nor greed can tempt nor illusion divert
For Love you are by name by deeds you are love's working-map
 

 

Only in the transparent pool of knowledge, chiselled out by the sharp incision of wisdom, is seen the true face of what truth is: That what  beauty paints, that what music sings, that what love makes into a magic. And it is life: a momentary magnificence, a-bloom like a bubble's miniscule exposition, against the spread of this awe-inspiring composition of the the Universe. Only through the path of seeking, learning, asking and developing, only through the vehicles and vesicles of knowledge, only through listening to the endless springs flowing beneath, outside, around and beyond our reach, of wisdom, we find the infinite ocean of love which is boundless, eternal, and being infinite, it makes us, shapes us and frees us onto the miracle of infinite liberty: without border, limitation or end. There is nothing better, larger or deeper that humanity can ever be than to simply be and do love. The Humanion
